Dr. Robert Goggs qualified from the University of Liverpool, UK in 2004. He undertook a rotating internship and an ECC residency at the RVC, London and became board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care in 2008. He then worked at the RVC as a clinician in the small animal hospital for 2 years before moving to the University of Bristol to undertake a PhD investigating the roles of small G-proteins in the regulation of platelet shape change and secretion. Between 2011-13, Dr. Goggs co-chaired an effort to standardize viscoelastic testing in veterinary medicine, published in 2014. He is currently involved in the generation of consensus statements on the diagnosis and management of canine IMHA and on the rational use of antithrombotics in companion animals. Dr. Goggs is an Associate Editor (ECC) for the journal Veterinary Medicine and Science. Dr. Goggs joined the ECC team at Cornell University in October 2013, and he is currently an Assistant Professor. His research interests include hemostatic and thrombotic disorders, sepsis, biomarkers and canine IMHA and IMTP.
